  • Mahoney, Cory (2018-05)
    My work seldom begins with a clear idea in mind. To know too much about what I am going to do is to lose all purpose in doing it. The need to induce surprising results is crucial. Permutations of construction, glaze ...

    Much of my practice functions as a means to reflect selectively on my surroundings. This usually begins in the form of collecting, often in relationship to being an active practitioner of consumerism. I am undeniably ...

    I construct sculptural installations that illustrate change through the idea of impermanence by combining technology, video projection, sound, performance and light with other mediums ranging from glass, wood and metal. I ...

    Since the 1960s, the Internet has reached the whole world. The idea of cyberspace has evolved to became a significant term that describes people’s many different experiences of the Internet. Cyberspaces continue to incorporate ...
  • Dawson, Schuyler (2018-05)
    Who do we feel we are supposed to be? How do we see ourselves as we relate to the world? How do we find a reprieve from our daily anxieties? I explore these questions in my work using text and poetry situated amidst sculpture ...
  • Bai, Mimi Biyao (2017-05)
    Intersectionality is the overarching framework for my worldview. This term refers to the numerous, intersecting vertices of race, class, gender, etc., that affect an individual’s experience in society. Through this lens, ...
  • Yu, ChengOu (2020-05)
    My work and research are focused on iconography, culture contract and conflicts, system and logic, the concept of space. The pot as an icon is a starting point, this concept is further expanding to other subjects. My ...
  • Henry, Devin (2019-05)
    Text and image are two of the most effective tools for conveying an idea. Powerful notions can be conveyed not just by what is written, but also by how it is conveyed. Covering the Record was an exploration of these resources ...
  • Horowitz, Sam (2020-05)
    Our ability to provoke change is perhaps best illustrated by our eagerness to alter material states. Within my work, I synthesize and translate deep time into a more relatable, present frame of reference. I subvert common ...
  • Lee, YehRim (2017-05)
    In the U.S. I started to use this awareness to subvert masculine traditions and re-interpret them for my own practice as a maker. Here, I am learning to balance the best of both the Masculine and Feminine, just as I am ...
  • Kanadai, Hiromi (2020-05)
    My passion for ceramics was inspired by a wide range of possibilities on forms and surfaces to incorporate new ideas and fabrication techniques. The MFA Program at Alfred University has led me through the processes of ...
  • Foley, Colleen Marie (2016)
    I choose not to name myself a particular kind of artist. My title is not Video Artist, Performance Artist, Musician, or Writer. I have tried to characterize myself in that way before (as a painter) and it was a mistake. ...
  • Arend, Bailey (2016)
    My works are records of engaging actions, and what I find engaging is the kinesthetic experience of landscape. The experience of vast landscape defines the structure of the work: feeling strength while being dwarfed by ...
